A Simple Prayer


Today as I brought a meal to one of my tables, the gentleman asked “Are you going to pray for us?” I respond, “If you would like me too.” He nodded, and I informed them that I was Catholic, which he assured me would be just fine. So, I led them in prayer before they ate their lunch. After I finished, they thanked me for leading the prayer and anytime I checked on them they would again thank me.

It may not seem like much, but really it was quite an expirence for me. Here I am, just out of high school, working out in the world at a restuarant. A restaurant where I have witnessed many things. Where most guest just want to get their food, then check and get out of there. Rarely do I see folks pause a moment and thank the one who gave them the food. Even more rarely, do I see them ask their server to lead the prayer for them.

Though it is hard to describe, this expirence gave me a new spark of faith. I couldn’t hold back my smile and the rest of the day I felt an indescribable joy within me. It is the smallest and simpliest things that touch us the most. It is moments like these that God reveals his presence. It is in these simple moments that I know God IS everywhere. Not just in Churches… but the sparkle in the child’s eye; the elderly woman thanking me for being there; and the joy the table received as I led them in a simple prayer.

“And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Matthew 28:16 ❤


About Bluebonnet Girl

Thank you for stopping by! I am a newly graduated high school 18 year old girl who lives in the small town of Midlothian. I have many dreams and plans for my future, but am uncertain which road I shall take. In the mean time, I hope to attend a couple classes at our local community college and work as a waitress, while I wait for God to reveal His plan for me. One of my favorite pasttimes is writing; that is the reason I have this blog. On here, I like to share little moments of my life that have formed me into the person I am. I enjoy writing about my brother, whom I lost when I was just 10 years old. It has been a struggle living without him for the past 7 years, but my faith keeps me strong and it allows me to remain strong and happy in this life. As well as that, I enjoy sharing recipes (I love to cook/bake!), that I have found quite delicious! I hope you shall stay with me as I seek the purpose of my life. For now, I write for the glory of God and to show His love and mercy.
